In 2017, Green Builder Media and specialty modular builder Shelter Dynamics debuted the Flex House, a model for “Right-Sized” living in a small, flexible space that is connected, intelligent, resilient and sustainable.  After much anticipation, the Flex House is finally in production and available for purchase.   Order yours today!

Finely crafted by Shelter Dynamics, the Flex House embodies the concept of “Right Sized Living”.   At 768 square feet, the Flex House makes a big impression with its high ceilings, arched doorways, rounded corners, clerestory windows, and U-shaped flow.  The home has two bedrooms, full kitchen, dining nook, sizable living room, and full bathroom.

  • High performance building envelope system
  • Energy efficient windows, appliances, and LED lighting
  • Solar PV array and battery storage (grid-tied or off-grid)
  • Mini-split heat pump HVAC system with separate controls for multiple zones
  • On-demand tankless water heater
  • Smart home switches, plugs, and door locks
  • Low flow plumbing fixtures
  • Intelligent leak detection system
  • Low VOC paints and materials
  • Closed cell spray foam insulation
  • Sustainable options for countertops, cabinetry and flooring
  • Outlet for electric car charger
  • Option for graywater recycling system

The Flex House meets California Title 24 requirements for all 16 climate zones.  Its Class A roofing material, unvented attic, and cement board siding, as well as the sprinkler system, make the home extremely fire resistant.  And, it complies with Seismic Design Category E for building near major active faults.

The home is delivered in approximately 8-12 weeks to your property complete—all you need to do is set it down on a foundation, hook it up, and move in!  (*Delivery, permitting and site preparation costs not included, however, these services can be provided separately.)

The advanced home sells for $150,000, and a mere $5,000 will get you into the production queue!
